Things are moving here at Veeam with the impending release of Veeam Backup & Replication 10. For those Cloud and Service Providers running Veeam Availability Console (VAC) we have taken the opportunity to release a new patch that will add compatibility support for v10. This patch update is a Cumulative Patch for all previous patch updates. This adds immediate compatibility support for Veeam Backup & Replication v10 as well as Cloud Connect v10 compatibility support. VAC does it’s communicating between the server instance and remote sites for monitoring and management of remote Backup Servers and Agents through Cloud Connect, so it’s critical that it’s compatible with the latest release.
Note that there are new features in v10 which will not be supported in the v3 of VAC…the next major release of VAC will add supportability for those features not supported.
As well as the v10 compatibility, there are also a significant number of resolved issues, the full list of which can be viewed in the VeeamKB. To apply the patch, head to the VeeamKB and follow the instructions. You need to have at least VAC v3 Build 126.96.36.19947. From there, make sure you have a backup of the database, close down the Web UI and execute all three MSI packages as administrator on the server.
Once completed, you should have Build 188.8.131.5295 as shown below
As a sidenote: If anyone is interested, I created a quick a dirty script to install all the MSI Updates in the one go in silent mode.
#installs VAC MSI Updates. Requires update name in $msi array variable
$msi = @('VAC.ApplicationServer.x64_184.108.40.20695.msp','VAC.ConnectorService.x64_220.127.116.116.msp','VAC.ConnectorWebUI.x64_18.104.22.1686.msp', 'VAC.WebUI.x64_22.214.171.12495.msp')
foreach ($msifile in $msi)
Start-Process -FilePath "$env:systemroot\system32\msiexec.exe" -ArgumentList "/update `"$msifile`" /l*v /qn /norestart" -Wait -WorkingDirectory $pwd
Again, this is critical to have installed as we ready for the release of Veeam Backup & Replication v10.
